White House says $100-per-flight fee is needed

from General Aviation News

Aviation groups are gearing up for another fight against the $100-per-flight charge for use of air traffic services after the White House rejected a petition calling for dropping the proposal. Dana Hyde, associate director for General Government Programs, said in a letter rejecting the petition that "the Obama Administration believes it's essential that those who benefit from our world-class aviation system help pay for its ongoing operation."
